Its name comes from that of a bird—the Eurasian teal|common teal (''Anas crecca'')—which presents a peculiar colored stripe on its head. It can be created by mixing blue with green into a white base, or deepened as needed with a little bit of black or gray color. The complementary color of teal is maroon. It is also one of the initial group of 16 HTML/CSS HTML color names|web colors formulated in 1987. The first recorded use of teal as a color name in English was in 1917.Maerz, Aloys John and M.
